Try restting the inertia switch in the trunk. When you turn key to "ON", the fule pump will run for only 5 seonds if the engine does not start. Listen at the fuel tank for humming of the pump. The PCM, Powertrain Control Module controls the fuel pump relay. So, when you turn key on, the power relay powers up the PCM and the PCM powers up the fuel pump relay.

SOURCE: 1999 lincoln fuel pump

My fuel pump on my 1998 Lincoln Continental has no power. I checked the fuse it is good. I checked the fuel shutoff switch it was fine. I have traced the wire from the fuel shutoff switch to the fuel module driver in the trunk. The wire has power. I have also traced the positve wire from the fuel pump to the fuel driver on a different terminal, this wire has no power from the pump. I also changed the fuel driver, the low fuel pressure switch, the alternator, and battery.does anyone have any suggestion's?

SOURCE: Location of the fuel filter in a 1999 Lincoln Towncar

It is either along the frame rail, probably drivers side under car follow the metal fuel line or it is in the gas tank right at the fuel pump, either requires removing tank or carpet inside trunk to get to access panel, but your problem is probably not fuel filter, with todays clean fuels fuel filters are a problem of the past, used to be a easy fix but that is why they hide them now because they are usually good for life of vehicle, 1999 is not old enough to make difference in this situtation.

SOURCE: Fuel Pump not getting power

First thing I would reset is that fuel switch in the trunk. Never know when someone might have tapped the rear bumper a bit hard.

My 86 lincoln markv11 turns over but it will not start ?is there a fuse or circuit braker to the fuel pump? thanks.


Can you hear the pump when the key is turned on? If yes replace the ignition module, if your not getting fuel replace your fuel pump, requires dropping the fuel tank.

Wont start unless manually primed


Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine

You should hear the fuel pump priming for about a few seconds then shutting itself off.
If not hear replace the engine oil pressure switch
The 3rd wire to that switch is the pumps prime switch lead.
When the engines oil pressure is reached the computer will shut that circuit off and turn on the fuel pump relay
If you hear the pump prime the relay maybe at fault instead

go out and sit in your car with the door open turn on the ignition key and when you turn it on you should hear the fuel pump prime in the gas tank, if you hear it prime up then its something else. If you don't its the pump.

Hope you can read it, the load side of relay gets voltage from fusible link. The load side of relay is that line with arrowhead, showing open switch on left side of relay in diagram.

A couple of extra checks are turn the car over and try to start while some one squeezes the fuel return line,At the rail,with tool that doesnt damage fuel line.It eliminates fuel bypass through the fuel rail.No need to undo anything.Have someone confirm you have power while Cranking at the fuel pump end.It eliminates power supply issue.If these two test work out ok then the pump is looking very much like the culprit
